The Memorial Day weekend always marks the start of Summer for everyone. Summers are full of children, laughter, sun, water and fun. Being a Florida girl, it means my days are full of HEAT. One thing is certain, when it's REALLY hot, veggies are about the only thing that sound good.
I had a Twitter conversation this past week with my girl @goodgirlgonered discussing the heat. I said it was too hot to eat. My ever faithful @TheBlueZoo told us it's never too hot to eat. Also, she called us crazy. We love Steph, we do, but one thing I know for certain is that Steph has no idea what the HUMIDITY will do to an appetite when the heat index is over 100 degrees in the South.
So...SUMMER. Nothing I love more about summer than the fresh veggies. Whether you grow your own, go to the Farmer's Market or just visit the local grocery store, Summertime brings out the best in fresh veggies! Sweet tomatoes. Cool cucumbers. Colorful peppers. Juicy sweet CORN! My mouth is watering just thinking about all the crisp, fresh, yummy goodness!
This week, it's all about FRESH SUMMER VEGGIES! I want your favorite recipes. I don't care if it's salads, sides, grilled, cooked, whatever! Just share your favorites! See you Thursday for some GARDEN GOODNESS!

I'm a fast talkin', smack talkin', food lovin', recipe writin', ADHD sufferin', joke tellin', wit swappin', SNARKTASTIC mommy of five. I married Prince Charming who just so happens to be a Star Wars geek, and we are living happily ever after. I tend to over share, lose my cool and make rash generalizations. I'm teaching my kids to love everyone and appreciate all things. Did I mention I love FOOD?
